There are 25 spacious luxury tents each with a wide verandah on which one can relax and enjoy the views and birdsong. Dining is in a colonial-style room and there is a special sundowner terrace with amazing views across the bush. Enjoy the bygone delights of safari at this luxurious & modern camp.
A luxury tented safari camp which has been created in homage to the very best of past safaris. It occupies a great location in the Serengeti’s Western Corridor and is stuffed with antique furniture, four poster beds and rugs. Drinking a sundowner on the dedicated terrace here is what a proper safari is all about.
In keeping with the theme of colonial opulence, the elegant twin dining tents feature Edwardian-styled dining furniture, sprung floors, crisp-starched napery, delicate blue and white china and silver accoutrements, whilst the staff are attired in classical colonial ‘mess' uniform of white Swahili robes and turbans.
The extensive menus, meanwhile, feature full English breakfasts and five-course luncheons and suppers comprising delicate soups, lavish roasts, classic salads, home-made sorbets, local cheese boards and fresh-brewed Arabica coffee, whilst the extensive wine cellar reflects the best of both European and South African choices.
They also offer:
Expect each lodge to carry the signature Edwardian style of Kirawira with steamer-trunks, writing desk, brass lamps, rugs, sepia photographs and four-poster bed with a patchwork quilt. The luxurious ensuite bathroom is fitted with carved mahogany furniture and features a classic black-and-white tiled floor (separate flushed WC, shower, twin marble basins, hot and cold running water).
Due to the unique nature of the camp, Kirawira do not accept children under the age of seven.
The camp offers its own swimming pool (supervised by a qualified life-guard but not suited to small children other than under parental supervision) and paddling pond. They also offer a wide selection of board-games and books on Africa and the wilderness. Their professional nature guides also offer nightly talks and video presentations on wildlife.
